It feels like a long time since I've written about Lady Gaga. Welcome back, Gaga.
Lady Gaga is a busy leader of little monsters, and she's being rewarded for her dedication to her performance craft.
Associated Press has announced that Lady Gaga has been voted the AP Entertainer of the Year.
Paving the way for Lady Gaga's win was the release of her second album, Born This Way. The album has sold roughly 24 million copies, as well as 60 million singles. She's also toured for most of 2011 in support of the album.
As a fan of Queen, I feel pretty good about this one.
I'm still on the fence about Lady Gaga, but I recognize that she has undeniable skill, not only as a singer, but as a songwriter. She won the NYU Talent Show by playing her own songs on piano.
She may be the new lead singer of Queen, which was once fronted by Freddie Mercury, who arguably had the best voice in rock 'n' roll history. Mercury died of AIDS in 1991.
Since the horrific, life-changing earthquakes in Japan, Lady Gaga has been at the forefront of the relief effort.
One of her money-raising efforts has been the popular prayer wristbands she sells on her website. The red and white “We Pray For Japan” wristband (which includes the phrase in English and Japanese, along with Gaga’s signature monster claw symbol) is available for $5.
Lady Gaga just took home a few Grammy's, but now that the festivities in Los Angeles are over and done with, the eccentric pop star has her sights set on something bigger.
In the March issue of Vogue, fans will be able to read that Lady Gaga has proclaimed that she wants her new album, Born This Way, to the 'best album of the decade.'
She also mentioned her fans deserve “nothing less” than tha
There are six artists that have been announced to perform at the 53rd Annual Grammy Awards. They are artists you like.
It's like watching your favorite music videos, except live-ish, and in front of a whole mess of celebrities.
And, they will all most likely be holding one of the little statues at some point in the night.
The list of top-selling artists for 2010 according to iTunes has come out.
iTunes - in a world that seems to be able to find free music wherever it likes - has inexplicably taken over the music world with its cheap songs, cheap albums and accessibility.
Fantasy football is all the rage this time of year. I should know - I'm losing on a regular basis.
Typically, in football leagues, players get points for number of yards thrown, rushing yards, catches, touchdowns, interceptions, etc. There are players that are placed on the "Can't Cut" list and others that never get picked up because they are unreliable or don't produce points.
Then there are injuries. Injuries are inevitable in a season, especially in a collision sport such as football. Injuries can destroy a team (my team).
Strike has many different meanings in show business. If you are taking a set apart after a show, it is called "striking" the set. In baseball you are allowed two strikes before you're called 'out' on the third.
A few years ago in America, we saw the cancellation of shows because of a writer's strike. A similar situation is happening in France right now.
The Monster Ball looks to include even more 'little Monsters' next year. With an additional 12 dates, the party will be roaring well into May.
The tour will continue to Nebraska, California, Florida, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Michigan, Kentucky, Quebec and Ontario.
At this point, just imagine Lady Gaga never stopping her tour.
Her albums continue to sell, and the only way you continue a tour is if it is successful.
Much has been made about Lady Gaga during her rise to the throne of Queen Pop. Some of it scandalous, some of it intriguing, some of it confusing.
I've had the opportunity to attend Lollapalooza twice. I went in 2005 and 2006, and the heat neared the 105 degree mark each of the six days I attended. I can't say that the heat affected my general demeanor or overall enjoyment of the festival, though. In fact, the sheer number of bands that you will come to know or already love playing the festival, outweighs any potential downfall possibly conceivable.
